version: dita-ot-3.5.2

I just created a new plugin called org.custom.html6 and it extends from org.dita.html5

Trying to show nav-toc in all the pags. but the <nav> tag is not shown in <body> or above <main>

I just added the below lines in build.xml. 

<property name="html5.toc.generate" value="yes"/>
<property name="nav-toc" value="partial"/>

Even it is not adding <nav> for OOTB sources from <dita-ot>\docsrc\samples

Which Iam adding the below css is added to customized custom.css after generation.

nav[role="toc"] { float: left !important; width: 300px !important; } 
nav[role="toc"] > a { font-weight: bold; }

Thanks in advance for you.

Hi ,

I’m also facing the same issue, when trying to show the left nav-toc in all the pages with html5 custom plugin. Can someone please provide inputs ? Thanks in advance.

if you refer any .xsl in your plugin just comment the <feature tag and do dita --install and try the plugin.
